The Truth That Sticks (Paperback)
New Labour's Breach of Trust
Share this book
New Labour surged to power eleven years ago on the promise to be ‘whiter than white’, but their record in office and abuse of trust have proved a bitter disappointment for millions who believed this pledge to clean up politics.Martin Bell, a journalist whose career has been made reporting from the world’s unquiet corners, and one-time Independent MP elected on an anti-sleaze platform, asks – what went wrong? Wide-ranging and pulling no punches, “The Truth That Sticks” is a crushing analysis of a decade of deception, dishonesty and abuse of power, delivered with precision and great passion.It is a book that only Martin Bell could have written, and, as Martin’s new postscript shows, it’s a critique just as relevant now with Gordon Brown in charge.
